Lets face it – cabbage is a blah vegetable.
It has no character, no will power, no taste no nothing. It’s rather like those folks in a Governmental office. Pale, potbellied and billious green who will be damned if they do any work for you.
Which is why finding any good cabbage recipe is a momentous occasion worthy of many ballads and poems. Since I cannot write ballads ( ask Mo, sigh) and can manage only bad poems, I shall instead just share the recipe.**
Cabbage ( half a head) ~ 1/2 kilo – grated
Two large onions – grated
Approx 1 tsp of the following
Roasted Coriander powder
Pinch of Turmeric
Pinch of Amchur powder
2 tbsp of Besan ( Chickpea flour)
~ 75-100 gms of Rice flour ( you need enough for it to get bound properly)
Salt to taste
Mix the whole thing together, pat it into a cutlet, and shallow fry it on a tawa on low fire.
You can change the individual masalas depending on taste.
This can be served as an accompaniment, or sneaked into bread slices for unsuspecting kids or cabbage-hating-spouses .
